When will Ting support GSM wifi calling for iOS?
Answered

I was reading the posts found out many customers are disappointed...seems they have been waiting for over a year now.

  • Unfortunately, an MVNO like Ting is dependent on their network partners for what services they can provide. When Ting started GSM, their partner did not permit them to support WiFi calling on iOS. They must permit that for Ting to go ahead and offer that service.

  • Remember, Wi-Fi calling on GSM still uses minutes because the call traverses the partner network and they charge Ting.

  • Thank you for the status on GSM-Wifi calling on IOS.  It us understandable that Ting's network partners did not permit this service to begin with.  However, now that there is much expressed interest in this service, where do the negotiations stand now?  Adding GSM was a huge success in my mind, and it seems that this component of that service would logically follow.  Is there no timeline at this point?

    Thank you also for the clarification on GSM using minutes on the partner network.  There is still a considerable benefit when the Wifi call originates in an fringe area, where cellular service is minimal--but Wifi is plentiful.  This extends the range of Ting use ability.

    I enjoy Ting and would like to totally replace my present carrier (I am presently carrying both phones while my testing continues).  The Ting customer service is almost enough to ditch the other carrier, but these are obstacles to yet overcome.  I do realize that this is the voice of one...

    Thank you for the great work on Ting and the services today!  And, with customer service like you have now, I think you can be successful in about anything...
